    IFDA Applauds FDA Decision Regarding Enforcement of FSMA Written Assurance Requirements

    IFDA Applauds FDA Decision Regarding Enforcement of FSMA Written Assurance Requirements

    IFDA is pleased that the FDA has chosen not to enforce certain provisions of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), specifically the written assurance requirements of the hazard analysis/preventive controls regulation. This decision demonstrates FDA’s commitment to public health by allowing both the agency and the food industry to focus on the critical issues of food safety without imposing an overly burdensome regulatory regime.  IFDA appreciates FDA’s recognition that the written assurance provision created an unnecessary requirement that had little impact on food safety and the agency’s willingness to work together with industry to strengthen consumer protection standards through regulations that are practical and science-based.

    IFDA Supports Trump Administration Rule that Paves the Way for Association Health Plans

    IFDA Supports Trump Administration Rule that Paves the Way for Association Health Plans

    IFDA is grateful to President Trump for addressing regulations that make it difficult and costly for small business owners to provide healthcare for themselves and their employees. Foodservice distributors see firsthand how the rising cost of healthcare has impacted small businesses. The Department of Labor’s proposed new rules will lead to more affordable choices for many Americans. Specifically, the rule removes regulatory roadblocks preventing businesses from joining together to find affordable coverage for themselves and their employees. We look forward to working with the administration to implement the new rules.

    IFDA Applauds President Trump for Signing Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

    IFDA applauds President Trump for signing legislation into law that represents the largest reduction in business tax rates in our nation’s history to bring much needed relief to American businesses.

A tax reduction of this magnitude will allow our member companies to use the savings to invest in growing their businesses, creating jobs, and giving back to their communities.

    "IFDA commends the U.S. House of Representatives on the passage of H.R. 3441 – the Save Local Business Act. This legislation provides much needed clarity, protects business relationships, and promotes economic growth. The NLRB-created joint employer definition is far too broad and poses an existential threat to American economic growth.

    IFDA Statement on Proposed Tax Reform Plan

    IFDA Statement on Proposed Tax Reform Plan

    IFDA applauds Chairman Kevin Brady of the House Ways and Means Committee, his colleagues on the Committee, and Republican leaders for producing a historic tax reform plan that will bring much needed relief to American businesses. The legislation would represent the largest reduction in business tax rates in our nation’s history and ensures closer parity between different industries. Wholesaler-distributors are currently taxed at an effective tax rate of 37%, which is significantly higher than many other industries. A tax plan that views reform through the lens of effective tax rates is more fair and equitable than our current system.  In addition, the bill immediately doubles the estate tax exemption and then phases in full repeal.  IFDA has long supported this kind of comprehensive tax reform.
